KAVA-Time

Knowledge-Assisted Visual Analytics Methods for Time-Oriented Data: We will study how we can take advantage of explicit expert knowledge in the Visual Analytics process to make analytical reasoning more effective and efficient.
We plan to develop and evaluate knowledge specification methods as well as knowledge-assisted visualization and interaction methods for time-oriented data.
